Tire and whell ?

I had a buddy of mine give me a set of Firestone NDT military tires, they are tube type but he said that i could run them on my factory ford steel wheels without tubes. Can anyone help me out here?

Why in the hell would you want to run NDTs? They are about the worst tire I can think of for just about anything except a military restoration.

they will allow your truck to fly to mars and you an be a real astronaut!!!


^read the above


believe it? why not, it's on the web...

NDT's are only good for .mil trucks that need them to be "correct". Hell even the .gov knows they suck which is why all the new trucks have different styled tires.

You won't be happy with them if you get them.

Knowing what size tire your trying to mount to what size rim would also help.

Example, trying to mount a 16.5" tire on a 16" rim is NOT a good idea.

Tubeless tires have a butyl rubber liner that
acts as a tube, tube-type are made without.

They will bleed air, through the casing. The rate will vary,
so you could try it, and see how well it works.

Just out of curiosity, why not run the tubes?
